Zorin OS 6 Lite - The Lite Fantastic

Filed under
Linux

I am a real fan of Zorin. Very few distributions work perfectly straight out of the box. There is always one hurdle or another that needs to be jumped in order to get the system into a state of readiness.

Zorin OS 6 Lite is designed to work on computers that have lower resources available than is required to run Zorin OS 6. Zorin OS 6 adds a bit of razzmatazz with the use of Compiz and the applications included have a heavier footprint than Zorin OS 6 Lite.

Zorin OS 6 Lite is based on Lubuntu 11.10 and uses LXDE. As you can see from the screenshot above the look and feel will be quite familiar for Windows users. There is a single task bar at the bottom with a start button and quick launch icons and in the bottom right system tray icons.

New Arduino boards include first FPGA model

Arduino launched a “MKR Vidor 4000” board with a SAMA21 MCU and Cyclone 10 FPGA, as well as an “Uno WiFi Rev 2” with an ATmega4809 MCU. Both boards have a crypto chip and ESP32-based WiFi module. In conjunction with this weekend’s Maker Faire Bay Area, Arduino launched two Arduino boards that are due to ship at the end of June.

DragonFlyBSD 5.3 Works Towards Performance Improvements

Given that DragonFlyBSD recently landed some SMP performance improvements and other performance optimizations in its kernel for 5.3-DEVELOPMENT but as well finished tidying up its Spectre mitigation, this weekend I spent some time running some benchmarks on DragonFlyBSD 5.2 and 5.3-DEVELOPMENT to see how the performance has shifted for an Intel Xeon system.
